It knows what it wants to be: an outrageous exercise in player power fantasy. It succeeds, offering a glut of interesting challenges and a suite of bonafide super powers with which to take them on. And it does so while respecting the player's choice to cause chaos with whatever character identity they prefer. You play as the leader of the Saints, once a street gang that's become the most powerful (and popular) organization on Earth. After an over-the-top prologue that sees you literally saving the world, you are thrust into the presidency of the United States, and subject to a devastating alien attack. You spend most of your time alternating between story missions, side quests and simply running amok in the huge open world. Gameplay comes in a wide variety of flavors, with much of...

2013 was a banner year for the game industry. Microsoft and Sony brought us into the eighth generation of consoles with the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, respectively, while the continuing rise of indie developers meant that self-publishing games on those new systems became an important battleground in the competition between the platform holders. That's all suspended for the time being, though, as the year winds down and the holidays arrive. We've collected holiday cards for 2013 from developers, publishers, platform holders, public-relations agencies and other companies in the gallery below, and we'll continue to update this post as we receive more of them. We'll start off the collection with a special animated card from ReedPOP, the company behind New York Comic Con, all the Penny...

As a sucker for both the Saints Row franchise and holiday-themed video games, I was thrilled to hear about this holiday-themed downloadable content. Finally, I could see Santa, Mrs. Claus and the North Pole from the peak of a 500 ft. super jump. Ultimately, the DLC wasn't quite what I wanted for Christmas. And yet, it captures what I love most about this time of the year: the pervasive optimism, the glowing lights and the overdue chance to spend time with old friends. Like the Saints Row series itself, the DLC is scrappy and a bit undercooked, but filled with enough goodwill to cheer up the grumpiest Grinch.
